About Us

It has always been my dream to own a gym for children. Following my experience as a franchisee within the The Little Gym brand I have realised the idea of operating my own independent business as of 2010. Balance and Beam Gymnastics offers programmes with a specially designed curriculum of activities, exciting weekly themes, upbeat music, in a pristine facility. 

I am incredibly proud of our achievements to date as we continue to grow from strength to strength.

What makes us so special is that we have a fantastic team of dedicated & truly wonderful instructors working here which is testament to the love they have for teaching the children and the commitment and enthusiasm they have to helping each and every one of them develop their confidence and realise their full potential.  Most of the core team, Elly, Georgia, Setta & Charlotte have been here for over 3 years + now and absolutlely love what they do and we have Alicia, Lauren & Tayshan who've been here for a while now too.  Pam's now becoming part of the furniture, helping us raise our profile, manage our marketing activities as well as taking on a more active role with HR

We have helped the shyest of children to overcome their fears of failure, we have channelled the energy of some of the liveliest of children into a positive one & for children with behavioural problems, they have learnt how to listen, share, take turns & interact with other children. Children with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, hyper mobile joints and co-ordination difficulties have come on leaps and bounds as we focus on motor skill development and cognitive learning.

We also facilitate Group Visits to come down and have some real structured fun with us.   Out of School Holiday Clubs, Schools, Home-Schooled, Special Needs Schools, Rainbows, Brownies, Beavers & Cubs, playgroups and nurseries.  Why not treat them to an hour and a half of fun based activities, including team games, obstacle challenges, free play on the equipment etc. Here's what Stockton Brooks Cubs had to say,

"Thank you for our wonderful visit to the gym.  All the cubs had a really great time and it was nice for us (team leaders) to have a night off for a change.  We will definately be back again & with the Beavers too".


For more information on anything we do here please give us a call on 01782 214452. 

We are always happy to help!
